question, can governor romney double down on his debate win and take control of this race? wiil friday's surprisingly strong jobs report -- >> the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> -- stop his momentum? we'll ask top advisers to both candidates, robert gibbs for obama, ed gillespie for romney. then insight and analysis on our powerhouse round table with our favorite political odd couple, james carville and mary matalin, plus nobel prize winner paul krugman of "the new york times," peggy noonan from "the wall street journal" and abc's jonathan karl. then -- >> and what would you like for christmas, little boy? get off. >> the week's other political slugfest, bill o'reilly joins us live this morning. >> from abc news, "this week" with george stephanopoulos. it's "your voice, your vote." reporting from abc news election headquarters, george stephanopoulos. >> hello, again, just 30 days now until the final votes, and after the most intense week yet of this campaign, mitt romney has momentum. national polls show him gaining ground, and his crowds have
for the president to say that he and romney are coming down in the same way. social security today has a $2.7 trillion surplus. social security hasn't contributed one nickel to the deficit, can pay out benefits for the next 20 years. the president should be saying now what he said four years ago. he is not going to cut social security while romney and ryan certainly are. >> would you blame the president himself or his aides and advisers who were supposedly preparing him for this first debate? >> wolf, all of us in public life like to blame our staff when things go bad, but you know what, at the end of the day, it's the president, it's a united states senator, it's a congress person. we've got to take responsibility. the president should have got in there swinging, differentiating what a progressive policy position is as opposed to an extreme right wing one. put romney on the defensive. how dire you give tax breaks to the richest people in this country while we have the most unfair distribution of wealth and income. how dare you throw children off of medicaid when we've got 50 million people
that is completely wrong. >> reporter: romney next heads to florida. that state's unemployment rate has gone down in recent month, is still well above the national average. wolf? >>> let's bring in our chief political analyst gloria borger and ron bronstein. gloria, the new numbers, how will they impact the president? >> they're a great talking point for the president. very important to be below 8%. the president can't say these are fabulous, this is great. he has to say no, we're heading in the right direction. and that's what's really key for him. republicans and mitt romney of course are saying you know what? this isn't moving fast enough. but at least for the president, after his poor debate performance, now has some good news to hang on to. and something he can point to. and say okay, right direction. >> because people could easily understand 8.1%, 7.8%, right track, wrong track. that looks like the right track. >> a little bit of psychological milestone that it's back to the level it was when he took office. after that decline. but overall i would say these numbers are kind of, you know, wa
'm 55, 60 years old i know my body is going to be broke down and romney doesn't care about that. >> bill: a nasty situation involving a romney campaign sign also in california. here now fox news anchor geraldo rivera. so richard is mad at romney, why? >> well, richard hayes is a really, the sanitation worker. is he really the garbage collector at romney's la jolla mansion. also a member of as me the american federation of county and state employees. wevehement opponents of mitt romney's candidacy. they represent all the municipal workers. the people whose pensions are bankrupting cities and have been, you know, in the crosshairs of mitt romney and the republicans for this entire election cycle. so they come up with this idea in the wake of the 47% hidden video where romney said, you know, half the people in this country don't tax. they are not going to vote for me no matter what. what they are trying to do democrats and very aggressive militant group of public employees are trying to do is really portray romney as a man out of touch. he lives in a mansion with an elevator for his car. an
's debate was certainly a big win for mitt romney, hands down. but observers are still criticizing him, actually, about not giving enough details. so, i want to read to you what a conservative columnist for "new york times" said right after the debate. romney had his share of lines and the stinctions he drew between romney care and obama care and didn't say anything about helping the uninsured. how do you respond to that? is it time for romney to give more specifics? is he having a problem with that? >> easy to criticize both of them for not giving enough specifics. romney has a 59-point economic plan that most people have never looked at. i would say that is probably too specific. i think mitt romney should focus on saying things like, mr. president, we are, you seem to have a problem with profits, which my company made. but most americans have a problem with deficits, which you've rung up four consecutive trillion dollar deficits. they both have a ltle problem with details. but there is a big, i would strike a big contrast if i was mitt romney. i would put a working state on one side
with autism or down's synd scprom wants to throw granny over the cliff. romney rendered all of those millions of dollars wasted. there is a side by side and people saw for themselves, a very different person than a caricature that the democrats were painting of him. where does he go from here? how should he prepare for the next debates? >> i think romney has to continue to hammer at these points. he gave a foreign policy speech, this monday, i am afraid it's a little bit late. when we were seized in the libya story and the american embassies were under attack from tunisia to indonesia, that was the time that he should have given it. now, he will be giving it. i think it's a great negatism but tell take the focus off the economy, which is where romney was scoring so heavily. he has to come back to the economy. stay on these points. he has to be a little bit wary because obama's going to come into the second debate, with low expectations and the second thing about this is, the second debate is going to be in a town hall that. places to obama's strengths. the relation with the audience. he has a
. oliver north is down on the ground in kabul. election a mont to go. what can governor romney do to maintain momentum. they weigh in on the race for the white house. terrifying moments as a charter bus carrying 50 people overturn crashes on a busy highway. hello, everybody. i am uma live in washington with the latest on that and top stories making news in america's news headquarters . a referundum on the president. choice between two different paths for america. whatever you call it. one month for today voters will head to the polls today. governor mitt romney is in florida setting the record straight about his economic plan. john roberts is live. romney is seizing on the momentum. how are the voters responding out there? >> the voters are responding to the governor. this event will be tonight. the entertainment is just warming up six hours before the actual appearance. the governor did debate prep in anticipation of a week from tuesday's all important second presidential debate. in the meantime traveling the i-4 corridor in this area. split in 2008 and yesterday in peterson and
. governor romney is going to let wall street run wild again but bring the hammer down on sesame street? >> and democrats are wondering where that president obama was in the debate on wednesday and people wonder if he will be tough one on one when he has the stage. >>> and the obama touting a 181 million for september we have yet to hear from the romney campaign how they did last month. >> thank you for bringing us up to date from the romney camp. >> i don't know what the right number is, but i will tell you, these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> what about those recent numbers in the latest job report and showing a dip in the unemployment. former chairman jack welch is skeptical. meaning that employers added a modest 114,000 jobs and the drop comes at a critical time for the president who is coming off a weak debate performance with romney. joining us is new york times best selling author out with the latest book. ann coulter. at this point in time the president said we will be at 5.6 and enjoying that part of the economy and a more com
, romney boiled down the president's foreign policy to one of hope. >> i know the president hoped for a more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when words rbt backed up by deeds. when defense spending the being cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and our strategy isn't one of partnership but of passive ti. >> on actual foreign policy his specifics were thin amounting to deepening critical cooperation and reaffirming historic ties. susan glasser, your overall assessment of mitt romney? there was no shortage of criticism for the president. what did you make of the prescriptions romney was laying out? >> thanks, alex. you made an important point to say this isn't necessarily a fully formed recipe for what a rom uh any administration would look like. he's seeking to gain a campaign advantage over president obama rather than outline a fully formed foreign policy. i think you didn't see that today. in fact, in many ways it's still not clear whether there i
is romney said, look, with the hard right thing, we are down in the key states. we're down overall. this isn't working. well, let's bring back that etch-a-sketch campaign. will americans believe suddenly this man that's been saying one thing for the last year or two is now believed something entirely different? he's simply walked away from the whole 47% remark as well. are americans going to accept that? are the last numbers of undecideds going to accept that? >> erin, big bird is showing up. he became one of the memorable lines. is that going to be a problem? i remember chicken george running around, the first george bush's rallies. big bird, was that something that the romney people wished he had not opened the door to? >> al, one thing we saw throughout the primaries is that all kinds of costume characters like to show up to these events. so certainly we'll be seeing big bird from now until the election. the problem is, when mitt romney specified that public television is something that he wanted to cut, it puts a face on something. he did get specific but what he was worried about all al
a rational for why romney is running. if unemployment is now going down, if you have 30 months of private job creation, if you have bin laden dead, why is romney running? that's the problem they are getting if these numbers are out and they are out and they are valid numbers. >> he's losing rationale, and, you know, he began to lie today on the campaign trail because i think he said, what's happening is that people are losing fact, they are leaving the labor market. they are discouraged workers. that is absolutely not true, reverend al. one of the great things about this job report today is that it reflects good growth and the employed people to total population ratio has actually improved. so it's not people being discouraged. it's more people going back. it seems like it could be even more people going back to the labor markets. >> e.j., look at the job growth on screen from where we were going down under the bush administration. now as you see the numbers going up consistently every report since the president went in. so, i mean, you can't rationalize why you are running based on that. the
come too far to turn back now. >> eliot: not if you're mitt romney. the g.o.p. contender talked down the jobs numbers and the economy at an abingdon, virginia, rally. >> romney: there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very, very slowly. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> eliot: mitt just can't stand good news on the economy, and neither can his friends on the right, including knocks fuss anchor stuart varney who suspect politics were behind the jobs numbers. >> oh how convenient that the rate dropped below 8% for the in 43 months five weeks before the election. >> eliot: unbelievable jobs numbers, these guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. tweeting in regards to today's jobs report, i agree with jack welch, chicago style politics is at work here. more about jack welch and g.e. and accurate numbers more in this show later. we have an interview with cnbc. >> we have a very professional civil ser
romney was down double digit. >> he was down in ohio, certainly. i don't know about double digits. notice news organization which spent all the money doing the state polls, we have not had one poll since the debate talking about the effect, favorability and other things. i will say this: one of the things that has happened, the race has the disconnect -- romney should you'd this, the $200 million or more spent making him into an eager and the president never made the charges. i would be out there torpedoing obama's add very advertising, why won't he say it himself? >> i put up the real clear politics electoral map because there are changes. 251-181. you need 270. president obama is in the heed. he did have, can you put up the electoral college map in he did have ohio. that now is in the contested column. romney loses month, both move to swing states. talk to us about this, congressman? >> it is what we have been saying. if romney heals himself, and he went a long way in doing, it will affect the national picture and all the states will go in line with that. he has done that. here is the t
a state that mitt romney has been struggling. right now, romney is still down by a point there. but it is a competitive situation. the fact is, all three of these states have nobody, really, in the lead. they are pure toss ups. the question is whether this is just a bounce that will fade or is it something that mitt romney can build upon and carry through the remaining month. >> now, someone from real clear politics said maybe the jobless numbers today could benefit president obama a little bit but give us a sense of how long these things last, how long the bounce lasts and what we should look for the next week? >>guest: well, bounces last these days less than a week so if it is just a bounce it will fade. they last only until there is a better story. the jobs numbers today give president obama something new to talk about, a more positive direction. most voters are concept california of good economic news , whether it is a republican or democratic president until it is repeated. so, if the next jobs report is good or the next series of economic reports are better, that the help
romney said. >> the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly, but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> he went on to say the country can do better, which is about what you would expect him to say, same as you would expect president obama to say what he said. that's the way the two sides do it, year in, year out, campaign after campaign. what no one does, at least until now, is look at the numbers and suggest the fix is in. this morning jack welch did tweet, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate to change numbers. i think he presumably means the obama campaign. and conservative commentator laura ingram tweeted, another name for the labor debt's bogus 7.8% unemployment number. obama's surprise, thanks hilda. hilda solis is responsible at the bureau of statistics which puts out the job numbers. >> i have the highest regard for our professional staff at the bureau of statistics. folks that have been
term. he just tried to talk romney down. and the numbers are a moment where he's going to have to do that and say why are these numbers bad and why will they be better if you re-elect me? >> gene, both camps have not really talked about the next four years. the romney people have been open about it up until recently when i think "the wall street journal" and a lot of conservatives have smoked them out, so they're getting a little more specific on deductions and a few other issues. but you could say the same thing about the president's team. they made the calculated decision to not talk about what they're going to do over the next four years. and that puts an incumbent in the position to do nothing but defend the last four years, doesn't it? >> well, it seems to me, look, what do people want to hear? i mean, really, what do people want to hear? why are they going to vote for one candidate or the other? it's what they're going to do over the next term. you know, we said on this program months and months ago that the winner of this election would be or at least should be the candidate w
is will the headline 7.8% do anything to slow down mitt romney's rise? let's talk. igor volski, and steve moore. good evening, gentlemen. steve moore, it is possible that the economy is doing a little better or did better in september than people think. i don't want to defend the number but the bureau of labor statistics say the economy is not as bad as some people think. >> it was a decent number, no question about it. barack obama got his four-year wish list. he got that 7 in front of the unemployment rate number, which he's wanted for a long time. i'll say what i say in our editorial tomorrow. the labor market still stinks, larry. this is a lousy labor market. we still have 14.6% people who are unemployed when you include the people who can't find a full-time job, when you include all those people who dropped out of the labor force, that's 23 million people. i wanted to emphasize one thing with your conversation with jack welch. jack was right about one thing. there are only 10,000 added in terms of government jobs in the new report but all of the additional -- the revised upward jobs numbers for
's supporters, very disappointed in his performance. mitt romney has a couple of events down in florida this weekend. but we understand he's also going to be practicing for that next debate in two weeks. rob portman, the republican senator from ohio, who has portrayed president obama in some of these rehearsals is down in florida with him. mitt romney, obviously, trying to keep that momentum going. >> what are you hearing within the white house about the spin on those -- on the 7.8% report that came out yesterday? and all these conspiracy theories that are surrounding it? >> reporter: the white house calls it utter nonsense, as do most people on both sides of the aisle. jack welch is almost famous or infamous by now. jack welch, the former ceo of general electric, tweeting out that, you know, the innuendo that the bureau of labor statistics had cooked the books. that was called utter nonsense by the deputy white house spokesman. others, including jared bernstein, who is an economist here until recently in the white house, said that welch should be ashamed of himself. you know, he's sort
shot whence the president was looking down auchbd and romney looked more energetic. we see that here. that, i think, with the focus on the body of the debate changed the way you looked at. i was more focused on what they were saying. >> you're such a purist, listening to what they say. that's adorable. the other stuff, the body language, how they interact, what they call each other, all that feeds into it. "saturday night live" which i know you're interesting in it all feeds into this massive perception that it's a huge fail. >> i'm going to be old fashioned and hang on to that. warning, we're about to get into substance of an exchange between mitt romney and barack obama about the tax plan which obama characterized as being $5 trillion and not being fully paid for. let's watch. >> when you add all the loopholes an deductions that upper level individuals are taking advantage of, you don't come close to paying if for $5 trillion in tax cuts 257b8d trillion in additional military spending. >> i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know you keep saying that but i
your fiber. >>> forget about barack obama and mitt romney. there was another smack down. a pay-per-view for charity. i'm talking, of course, about the debate between jon stewart and bill oh riley? i think that fox news is an overreaction to what may be a patina of people that believe in -- in other words i don't think abc and nbc and cbs are activist organizations for liberal causes. i think fox looks at those organizations and they're sort of an autoimmune disease against that. >> i see you make more than a billion dollars a year. >> what were these television talkers trying to accomplish? joining me here, are you going go out on a limb and declare a winner? >> this sounds like a copout but i think they both came out ahead. they both, think, very much held their own and proved that they're very good at this. >> this was very heavily promoted. >> yes. >> did it live up to the hype? when they were standing up at the podiums, it felt a little strange to me. i didn't think either one of them held up like they do in their program sthoos they like each other, so they're not out to r
political analyst roland martin. do you think mitt romney is taking more centrist positions? >> the 47% comment really breaks down into two. the pejorative way he talked about the 47%, you didn't show my clip. when you asked me about that the day afterwards, i said he was wrong, they aren't victims and he shouldn't use that word. the economic part of it is factually right. we are a country where 47% should be excused for paying any income taxes. >> but he said that's totally wrong. >> let me get to that. the top 47% make more than $250,000 a year and pay more income taxes. he was wrong by saying 47%. he was right in saying 47% don't pay income taxes. you talk about lifting those people up so they can make it in america. that's what they want. they want to become taxpayers, and that's where he was totally wrong and tonal deaf. that's why i said that night, they're not victims. >> but his response right now is saying he was completely wrong, which is different than what he said earlier, saying he stated it ineloquently. >> i think what he was saying is he was completely wrong in speaking
, this election season, it is political. president obama says there is more to be done. governor romney says this is not what a real recovery looks like. the labor department reports the economy added a seasonally adjusted 114,000 jobs last month which brought down the jobless rate to an unexpected 7.8 percent. here is a look at the unemployment rate since 28 state. the gray area on the left is the president since the recession. the rate has not been this low sin the inauguration in january of 2009. of course, this could be a potential boost to the president's campaign. no incumbent since the great depression has beenwith unemplo8 percent. the president said the economy is moving forward and suggested governor romney's policies would spark another financial disaster. >> we made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen and i won't allow it. >>trace: governor romney downplayed the new jobs numbers. he wrote in a statement and i quote, "this is not what a real recovery looks like. we created fewer new jobs in september
over time. how does that factor? we've seen it. they are going to try to grind down romney on the idea that he is a chia chameleon, who do you trust, to he really performed well. >> well, the group of undecideds showed that they didn't necessarily change their vote one way or the other. i think when you have -- paul ryan is not going to be able to do what mitt romney did. he was the chairman of the budget committee, for goodness sakes. it would be an affront to him to make up all of these numbers. >> let me switch to a different performance this week that got a lot of attention. i had the chance to sit down with a familiar face on this program, arnold schwarzenegger, former governor of california. recent revelations about his personal conduct have hurt his reputation, to say the very least. you have noticed he's been out this week with a new book called "total recall:my unbelievable true story" in which he details what he says are his successes and his failures. governor schwarzenegger, whack welcome back to "meet the press" meet. . >> thank you. it's good to be back again. >> let's st
exactly, because i want to drill down -- >> the president who loved style dispensing with style. >> this is a president who is serious about substance and is wondering where it is that mitt romney went with his substance. i bought a whiteboard last night. i should have brought it there's a $4.8 trillion reduction in revenue, okay? according to mitt romney's own plan. there's a 20% rate reduction from the bush tax cuts, we're going to end the estate tax. we're going to cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. you cannot sit here, mr. speaker or anybody can sit here and say that doesn't require a reduction in the amount of revenue by $4.8 trillion. >> i'll say it i'll say it. >> moderates, levels, everybody says here's the problem, you guys won't give them any credit for closing loopholes. he won't name the loopholes, you're attacking him for not giving you the target and you tack him when you get the target. >> and it's like admitting that the substance doesn't match up. >> if there's substance, why do, you keep bringing up substance. let me hear some obama substance. your sub
